Hi Rick!

It doesn't look much like any of the designs we did for them does it? Still, the V3.5 was a pretty sound car, if they've beefed up the drive train and will improve manufacturing quality it should be a decent car.

Is that clear body the production one? If so, it's still no great looker, but certainly better than the last one!

Looks great with the PR body on!!

Jimmy

The Caster V4 has the same body as before, this body is from CRPPlus.com and is made by Jconcepts. as far as the drive train it has all been hardened now.. Much much nicer.. also the car is lighter

I had a great weekend racing at the 2015 Motown Showdown race in Modesto, CA.. My pre-production Caster Racing V4 S10B pro buggy was on point all weekend long giving me 2nd place in qualifying and taking 2nd place in the main. I'm running a TS120 Toro esc, Ares 6.5 motor, Tenshock battery, Highest servo, Jconcepts tires, DE wheels and a Graupner Radio.
Rcinsider was there taking shoots of the buggy so look there for some info..
ETA is July 2015
